Stephen: Public Health advise about COVID-19 outbreak at Manitoba worksite
The Department of Health and Community Services is advising rotational workers about an identified COVID-19 outbreak at the Manitoba Hydro Keeyask Generating Station project located approximately 725 kilometres north of Winnipeg. The department was notified about the outbreak by the Public Health Agency of Canada as individuals from this province work on the project.
Rotational workers with the project who have returned to Newfoundland and Labrador in the last 14 days must self-isolate away from household members and call 811 to arrange for COVID-19 testing. These workers must now complete the full 14-day self-isolation period, regardless of test result.
The rules for rotational workers from Newfoundland and Labrador who work outside Atlantic Canada in another Canadian province or territory that went into effect (Wednesday, September 9) do not apply to workers at worksites where there is an ongoing outbreak.
